The other day, I received a good question about substituting one sized jar for another. I love sharing my experiences with readers and fellow canners, so feel free to shoot more questions over to me via my website or by posting them on my Facebook page.
The safest way to can is to make sure you’ve got the right equipment and the knowledge you need to do the job consistently and efficiently.
Q. I purchased the Create Pasta Sauce Mix for when my tomatoes are ready for canning. While reading the directions I noticed that the directions call for pint canning jars. I would like to use quart jars. Is this going to be a problem?
A. Yes, it will be a problem. We have not tested mix with quart jars and the heat will not penetrate to make a safe product. You need to use the pint jars for a safe product.
